The two photographs show a recent re-tiling contract.

The top photo shows the cottage before works with the main roof having been clad in an unsympathetic concrete tile and rather poor lead work.

The lower photo shows the cottage after works .The main roof has been clad in an Eternit hand crafted clay tile and the lead works renewed and tidied.

The lower roofs have had the old tiles reused.

We think overall the cottage has been enhanced by the use of more appropriate materials and improved leadwork detailing.


We offer all aspects of lead work from a simple flashing to a completely flat roof.

We pride ourselves that our lead work is one of the best in the area and can be verified by many of our clients who use us from housing to specialist works on listed buildings.

The type of lead we use exceeds anyone else's due to its durability and long life span ensuring your quality for money.

Single Ply

Kavanagh Roofing have been offering single ply roofing systems for a number of years and are using materials supplied by Cefil Ltd

Single ply has been available within the industry for some years offered numerous manufacturers but we have aimed in our opinion to offer one of the best systems on the market.

Cefil only operate using approved installers who have been vetted by them. Cefil unlike some single ply materials is not available to the general public or to the trade as a supply only material and can only be supplied and installed by approved fixers. This ensures quality is maintained.

We are one of the few installers in the South West and are able to cover the Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, Somerset area.

Cefil do not supply materials to non approved installers and it cannot be purchased from builders or roofing merchants.

All jobs have a site specific fixing specifications prepared before works commence and is inspected on competition by Cefil to confirm compliance and to issue their guarantee.

A Cefil guarantee (15 Yr min) can be supplied on completion of works.

It also worth remembering that single ply materials have no salvage value unlike lead and can therefore be used in areas were theft problems may be a consideration.
